"Our Eastern European Roots: We Are What Our Ancestors Ate", Amy Wachs

What can family recipes reveal about your ancestors' places of origin and life in the shtetls of Eastern Europe? The foods our ancestors ate in their shtetls can offer clues to help you learn more about your family history. Amy's presentation will focus on the Russian Pale and Galicia. She will include examples from Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine, and Moldova, based on her personal experiences there.
